Step 1: Go to the store and buy a jar of roasted red peppers.

Step 2: Return the jar and buy red peppers from the produce aisle.

Roasting your own peppers is significantly healthier than buying them, and you control what gets added with your peppers.  I roast mine absolutely plain, but you can drizzle with olive oil and/or add salt and pepper.  Here’s how to:

  1. Preheat oven to “Broil.”
  2. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Cut peppers in accordance with their flat sides – so you want to be able to lay them flat.
  4. Lay sliced peppers flat on the sheet with the outsides facing up.
  5. Roast peppers in oven in the top rack for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Remove peppers and place in closed plastic bag for at least 10 minutes.
  7. Remove peppers from back and peel off skin and charred parts.
